Bake your own hot cross buns this Easter.

#behindeverybake #hotcrossbuns #easter

What you need:

For Buns

  • 625g/1lb 4oz Odlums Strong White Flour, plus extra for dusting
  • 1 teaspoon Salt
  • 2 teaspoon Goodall’s Mixed Spice
  • 50g/2oz Butter, cubed, plus extra for greasing
  • 75g/3oz Shamrock Golden Caster Sugar
  • Rind of 1 Lemon, grated
  • 1 x 7g sachet Fast Action Yeast
  • 1 Egg, beaten
  • 275ml/10fl oz Milk (tepid/lukewarm temperature)
  • 125g/4oz Shamrock Fruit Mix

For Topping

  • 2 tablespoons Odlums Cream Plain Flour
  • 1 tablespoon Golden Syrup, gently heated

How to:

  1. Sieve flour, salt and mixed spice into a large mixing bowl, then rub in butter using fingertips until mixture resembles breadcrumbs. Make a well in the centre then add sugar, lemon and yeast.
  2. Mix in egg and milk to a form a soft pliable dough. Then turn out onto lightly floured surface and carefully work the fruit into the dough until well combined. Knead lightly for 5 minutes or until smooth and elastic.
  3. Grease a large, warm mixing bowl with butter. Shape the dough into a ball and place into the bowl,  cover with a clean tea towel and set aside to prove in a warm place for at least 1 hour.
  4. Once proved, turn dough onto a lightly floured surface and knock back to remove air. Shape into a ball again and return to the bowl, set aside for a further 30 minutes to rise.
  5. After 30 minutes, divide dough into 12 equal pieces. Roll each into a ball, then flatten slightly into a bun shape and place onto a greased baking tray. Cover again with tea towel and set aside to rest for 5-10 minutes.
  6. Wrap the tray with the buns on it loosely in greaseproof paper, then place inside a large polythene bag. Tie the end of the bag tightly so that no air can get in and set aside in a warm place for a further 40 minutes to rise.
  7. Preheat oven to 240°C/475°F/Gas 8.
  8. For the topping, mix the plain flour to a smooth paste with 2 tablespoons of cold water.
  9. When the buns have risen, spoon the flour mixture into a piping bag and pipe a cross on each bun.
  10. Transfer buns to the oven and bake for 8-12 minutes until pale golden brown. As soon as you remove the buns from the oven, brush them with the heated golden syrup, then set aside to cool on a wire rack.
